That's a good question. Even the sight of a condom wrapper or of someone opening one would be great.
I think there's two reasons... When you're building up a romantic fantasy of the most incredible, intimate sexual experience, you're probably not thinking about using a condom. Since movies aren't real, they're free to just reenact fantasy, rather than mimic reality.
As I think about it, it's the romantic scenes, or at least the scenes where the experience is portrayed in a very positive light, where condoms aren't used. I believe condoms are used in both Superbad and 40 Days and 40 Days Nights. 40 Days and 40 Nights is particularly informative: as I recall, the main character uses a condom in a meaningless and ultimately unfulfilling encounter early in the movie, but isn't shown using one in the romantic scene at the end.
Another reason (or the response you might hear from a director) might be that they don't show the characters NOT using a condom, so they are simply avoiding focusing on the more prosaic aspects of the encounter.
Hollywood has never been too keen on representing healthy life styles in the past; so, not seeing much going on today is no surprise.
Don't use condoms for population control....just kidding

Should you leave condoms in your car, even if it's a hot day?I know you shouldn't keep them in your wallet but then again not extreme temperatures either.

What is safe sex?Is it necessary to take “safe sex” precautions when you are having sex with just one partner -- or with someone you know well?

We all know that a lot of guys can be a bit... Blunt sometimes. Not very romantic.Some on the other hand are really sweet. But for some strange reason, most girls (me included) tend to not like the overly sweet guys. (Yeah we're not going to make it easy for them) For me what really swipes me off...
